Beautiful trail -- one of the best I've done in CO. Headed out around 745 on a Saturday in October -- very few people on the trail on the way up, but was getting crowded as I headed down. Several of us brought our dogs and let them off leash -- great trail for dogs. Definitely longer than 6.3 miles if you go to the upper lake...our GPS registered about 10 miles roundtrip.

One of my favorite hikes I've done in Colorado. I went in July and there were lots of windflowers. This hike has woods to walk through at the beginning, water falls and flowers, and then two beautiful lakes and amazing views at the top.

Went backpacking to the unnamed lakes past Upper Mohawk Lake. I tried driving down the rocky road but ended up having to stop 25% of the way in and hiked the rest of the way. Beautiful hike with lots to see, but it is very crowded. If you plan on camping, you will probably want to continue past Upper Mohawk, as there are not alot of spots
